Gallery Night in Chatham Part 2

As usual, my ambition fell short of my reality. I did make it to the new Cove Gallery ( well worth it ) but by the time I got to the other end of town Narrowland and Odells were closed.
What struck me at the end of the day was how many amazing people I met in those 2 hours; Michael, a photographer, Christine, a poet, Debby, an art teacher and artist, Cindy a photographer and gallery owner, and Roberto, a film maker and producer.
The vibrancy of Chatham's art scene reminds me of Park City, Utah. We lived there for 3 months in the winter. Park City may have been one of the original towns to do the weekly gallery stroll. The town has one long main street like Chatham and is filled with phenomenal galleries. It is also home to Sundance Film Festival and every week the library features one of the films from the year before. There is always something to do in Park City as I know there is on the Cape. This will be my first fall as a year round resident so I have much to learn. Please feel free to send me an email if you have any hot tips. ( I know posting a comment is a pain but those are always welcome as well )

  1. Hey Robin! David and I have spent the past week on Mt. Desert Island. A final summer fling. Getting caught up on blogs, I just spent some time with yours. Wonderful summer images! Did I read that you will be a year round resident on the Cape? What's the back story? Shoot me an email and call again when you are home. I am finally landing back at home for the fall, no more extended trips for awhile (except the last week in Sept. for a writing retreat.)
